I love Valentine’s Day and I have ever since I can remember. It never mattered if I had a romantic interest or not. I just enjoy this pretty, pink, sparkly day. I like thinking about the people I love, the people who’ve been in my life for a long time and the people who’ve simply passed through but left a lingering trail of kindness and sweet thoughts behind. Who wouldn’t want to celebrate the bonds that weave us together, that serve as a protective barrier against the harshness that life can bring and that provide a gossamer-soft safety net that catches us when we fly too high, or miss our mark, or make mistakes?
